Art Brut

Direct Hit

Art Brut
Look at them – they formed a band, became a cult, broke the Far East and turned into the band du jour for the bespectacled indie chap with a Hancock’s Half Hour box set under one arm and the collected works of Proust under the other. ‘Direct Hit’ is typical Art Brut moderno-pop fare, concerning a dancefloor ‘pulling’ between two awkward indie geekoids looking to tangle specs atop Yummy Fur bedspreads. Direct and, indeed, a hit.
